Protein Diet for Fat Burning

Protein diet is extremely popular for fast weight loss and weight loss without starvation. As its name suggests, it is based on foods rich in protein, and reduced carbohydrate intake. This method of protein diet was devised by the famous doctor Tran Tien Chan.

Proteins in the diet

Proteins are important food ingredients that, along with essential and non-essential amino acids, give the body strength and energy. They are important for building and rebuilding muscles and the function of internal organs, as well as strengthening the immune system. Proteins can be of plant or animal origin. Vegetables can be found in soybeans and legumes, and animals in eggs, milk, fish, cheese and meat.

The required daily dose of protein for an adult is 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight.

Protein diet

In most diets, there is a reduction in muscle mass instead of fat, but, in this diet, the opposite happens.

There are a large number of different variations of protein diets, and common to all these diets is a diet rich in protein foods, without the share of carbohydrates and fats.

Phases of protein diet

This diet consists of 3 phases of which all 3 are equally important

1. Active phase

This phase involves reducing the intake of fats and carbohydrates. As a result of reduced carbohydrate intake from the body, lipolysis (decomposition of fat deposits) occurs. Foods rich in protein accelerate the loss of extra pounds, and “preserves” muscle mass. At this phase, first there is a loss of water in the body, but after one week, fat deposits begin to melt.

At this stage, you can lose up to 2 kilograms a week, which gives a special motivation to continue the diet. In the first 3 weeks, until the body adapts to the new diet, you may feel mild weakness and dizziness. To avoid this, we recommend light exercises and walks.

2. Reductive phase

At this stage, the intake of carbohydrates should be gradually increased, and the intake of pure proteins should be reduced. In this way, the body weight gradually approaches the ideal.

3. Weight maintenance

In the last phase, the metabolism is adjusted to the daily diet. For this reason, the weight you lost is lost for good. It will not return, i.e. there is no the so-called “to-yo effect”. This phase will become your lifestyle and diet.
